No matter how many quilts I finish, each one feels like a grandiose accomplishment. The look of my newest finish deviates from most of my projects, which tend to be a lot more youthful and playful. Nonetheless, it represents an image I've had in my head for a long, long time. It feels good to get the stinker out of of my noggin and into reality.
There were a few times where I doubted how well the quilting would turn out, but I'm glad I hung in there. I started by quilting a spiral on the moon with white thread and my free motion foot. I switched to navy thread for the background and continued the spiral around the moon. After the spiral extended several inches beyond the moon, I ended it and switched to rays that shoot out from the moon. I used tailor's chalk to draw lines out every so often, which helped keep it on track.
